Grantown's Bell
Grantown's Bell
Money raised locally for the relief of wounded soldiers during the Napoleonic War but never sent, was originally used to purchase the town clock and bell and build the tower in 1824. Originally it was housed in the Speyside orphanage building in the square. This was removed in the 1980s when this was converted to flats. With generous funding from the Bulmer Trust, Grantown Museum was able, in 2006, to restore the clock and build this campanile outside the museum to house the bell. The clock is on display within the museum.
